I should not have dashed off a one-liner. Anything simplistic is less than helpful. AndresD, you say: - you're a beginner - you've played on and off for seven years - you've had the current teacher for a year Sorting this out: seven years and &quo

Studying with more than one teacher is fine for advanced pianists. When I was a conservatoire post grad I had 4 different teachers over 2 years and learned different things from each. By that time you are technically proficient and fairly sound in yo

I'm pretty sure changing out a hard disk wouldn't void the warranty, that would be daft! while the new drive may not be covered by the warranty the machine as a whole should still be fine as you are not "Opening it up" it's like opening the

Hi there! I finally did it, I bought a new laptop with a 64 bit I5 processor (my older one was a 2008 32 bit Pentium M). Of course it works far better in every sense than the older one, including virtual pianos. But the older one has a 7200 RPM disk

This one starts in C, goes through F minor and ends in F. It begins with my trademark RH runs over a chordal bass, until a cadence is reached in bar 12 and the music segues into a more sedate passage in F minor, featuring sixth doubling of the melody
